on your jobs, not ours. >> there were cheers in chicago and tears in boston. after the long hard fight, it was all over for the challenger. >> like so many of you, paul and i have left everything on the field. we have given our all to this campaign. >> now after the bruising campaign and facing a congress as divided as it was before the election, president obama and the country prepare for the next four years. >> thank you, america! god bless you! god bless these united states. >> announcer: from abc news, this is "america this morning" with rob nelson and paula faris. >>> good wednesday morning, everybody. four years ago barack obama stood on the brink of history the morning after his election. now four years later he stands on the brink of a second term. >> the president has won re-election after a hard-fought campaign, saying he returned to the white house more determined and decisive than ever. >> and he claimed a decisive and sweeping victory over challenger mitt romney although the popular vote is a lot tighter. >> but in the end, almost all of the key battleground states, includ
for abc news. >> i'm brandi hitt in boston where the room fell silent the minute it was announced mitt romney lost the key battleground state of ohio and then the election. romney supporters here were convinced he would win some of the key battleground states. he just fell short in states like pennsylvania, ohio and also virginia. here is what mitt romney told his supporters after he called president obama to congratulate him. >> this is -- time of great challenges for america and pray the president will be successful in guiding our nation. i so wish -- i so wish that i had been able to fulfill your hopes to lead the country in a different direction, but the nation chose another leader and so ann and i join with you to earnestly pray for him and for this great nation. thank you and god bless america. you guys were the best! thank you so much! [ cheers and applause ] thank you! thanks, guys. >> reporter: mitt romney thanked his donors, volunteers and supporters and says beside choosing his wife ann, picking paul ryan as a runningmate was the best decision he has ever made. ron, paula. r
from new attacks by republicans. later, a brawl in boston. the nets and celtics battle it out in the front row on top of fans. but first, the story that everyone will be talking about this morning at work, at least two people are a lot richer and probably not heading into the office today. sadly, i didn't even have one stinking number. lottery officials say winning tickets for the record $580 million powerball jackpot were sold in arizona and missouri. 160 million tickets were sold yesterday alone. at an astounding rate of 130,000 tickets a minute. the winner takes the cash option, they'll split a cool $380 million. that's $190 million apiece. it's the second largest payout in lotto history. you can be sure that uncle sam is smiling about his cut of the action. the federal tax rate is currently 25%. so it will be $380 million the government gets $95 million off the top. and the winning states not too shabby either. arizona takes 5% at 9$9.5 millin and missouri stakes $7.6 millio. in the end, the two winning ticket holders end up with 25% of that original jackpot. >>> mitt romn
or when you did. i want to bring gerri willis in, he is at romney headquarters in boston. have they spoken yet? >> reporter: i can't answer that question, but crowd here, that has grown in last hour, wants to believe, wants to believe ma karl rove said, just moments ago, he came up, ottoman ter here, speaking about the number of votes about how the republican party could take ohio, mitt romney could take ohio. huge cheer. came up from audience, people came in to the room, came into the room to listen to what was going on. this crowd now very emotional. i just walked through it people watching the television, trying to discern what is happening, that i want to believe their candidate has not lost. we still have no concession from mitt romney's campaign, 9 or hae we heard they have intention. my colleague next to me carl cameron, he started talking about karl rove's comments, a big cheer went up with the crowd, they wanted to show they are here, and supportive of their candidate. they believe that he should win this election. as moments go by, now it is getting quieter but no less packed thi
that gave him more latitude with the conservative base of the party. >> woodruff: speak of boston, and other places, let's hear now from our colleagues-- actually, ray suarez is in chicago. he and margaret warner are at the two presidential campaign headquarters, but, ray, we're going to come to you first. are you in chicago, and that's where president obama is tonight. >> that's right. he's just a few miles away. he's not here yet. and neither are a lot of the senior officials from the campaign. i think they probably want to wait to see a little bit more, but illinois senior senator, senator dick durbin is here, and there have been a lot of poll closings, a lot of projections, but so far no surprises. what do you need to see before you can really relax? >> some of the key battled ground states-- florida, virginia, ohio, and of course when we get in the midwest, a little closer to my activity in the last few months for the president, taking a look at wis cons and i know iowa. if we can get the job done in the midwest, and i hope we do glie you're not up this sickle. when you don't have a rac
our colleague ray swawrers and hopefully we'll be joined by margaret warner in boston. ray is at the presidential candidate night headquarters in chicago. ray, what is the sense right now? when we talk about this ground game issue, what does the campaign say about what they have over the romney campaign in terms of ground game? >> they said this time instead of sending volunteers and sending field workers from state to state, they concentrated much more heavily on using people that people know. i mean it sounds kind of obvious. but all the research shows that when someone you know talks about you... talks to you about casting the vote in the first place or voting for the person you prefer, that has a lot more impact than somebody showing up at your door with paperwork, a leaflet or a pitch for a candidate. so they've put much more emphasis on having people work their own neighborhoods this time around. and they say they have hit their marks, that they are getting out their numbers. and so far so good. gwen? >> ifill: well, ray, i'm also curious. you're standing there at the
, nancy. jan crawford has been covering the romney campaign. she is in boston tonight. jan? >> well, scott, governor romney just landed here about an hour ago after making campaign stops in that key state of ohio and in pennsylvania. he talked to reporters on the way back on the plane and he said he felt good about this campaign. they hadn't left anything in the locker room and that he thinks they're going to win. he said he just finished his victory speech. he's not written a concession speech. now, the mood inside the campaign tonight, scott, is one of cautious optimism, i'd say. but there is a little bit of nervousness and here's why: campaign sources that i'm talking with tonight say they are encouraged by the high numbers of republican turnout they're seeing in these swing states like ohio, florida, virginia. they believe that will outperform john mccain in 2008. that's the key to this election. they really had to run up the score in those areas. but here's where the nervousness comes in. they're also seeing some of the president's turnout in some of those democratic areas like in nor
they will close in ottawa, montana, and utah. alaska closes at 1:00 a.m. eastern time. we're in boston where the romney headquarters is located. the president and his team is in chicago. we're at the rnc headquarters in washington, d.c. and on capitol hill where the democrats are gathering and all evening we will show you the latest results. these are actual numbers. these are not projections as we track the key house, senate, and gov.'s races as well as the presidential race and you can keep track of all this on our website. this is the only network that gives you a forum to express your views in what is happening with results tonight and you can do so by giving us a phone call. the number is 202-730-triples 32. [inaudible] you can also join us on our twitter page. #cspan2012. we will get that in a couple of minutes. john boehner is here and let's get to some of the latest results. >> ap is calling some states in the presidential contest. let's start with new hampshire and take a look at the results. with 20% of precincts reporting, president obama has 55%. mitt romney at 44%. let's move on
in boston, where bystanders said, you could hear a pin drop, as the networks called the election for president obama. reports last night that governor romney was so confident in his victory, he had only written one speech beforehand, a victory speech. >> like so many of you, paul and i have left everything on the field. we have given our all to this campaign. [ cheers and applause ] i so wish -- i so wish that i had been able to fulfill your hopes to lead the country in a different direction. >> reporter: but in the end, it was not even close. obama won even those outstanding battlegrounds, like virginia, nevada. >> i just spoke with governor romney. and we may have battled fiercely. but it's only because we love this country deeply. >> reporter: so, george, the question, now, what now? and president obama has said that he will reach out to republican leaders. he wants to meet with mitt romney. he even last night reached out to romney voters. where are some areas of compromise? perhaps tax reform. perhaps immigration reform. we'll see in the days ahead. george? >> that's right. t
. but this is something to cheer, the people in boston at romney headquarters. >> john, i know you're looking to the screen as well. iowa being projected now for barack obama. >> well, that is a piece of bad news for the romney campaign. again, remember, mitt romney needed to win most of the nine swing states. not just a couple of them. most of them. he's still got to do that. he's not out of the game, but if you take the state of iowa, you got colorado out there, if president obama can hold nevada and the state of colorado, it doesn't matter what happens in any of these other states. he'll be over the finish line. so big challenges, more for president obama, fewer more romney, but he's still in the game. >> waiting on too close to call races which of course have been really critical. ohio being number one. florida, as well. we know now north carolina and, of course, iowa. >> larry, he needs 21 votes. >> yeah. there's a pattern. i mean, let's face it. there's a pattern here. and whether you're romney supporter or not, you got to look at this thing. the pattern spills over into the u.s. senate
roberts was there in boston again today with a recap, john? >> the governor put on a brave face. but he was experiencing bitter disappointment and a long, long road to get where he was. it does go to show that the were accurate in what they were hoying and always happens in every four years. they were looking attractive in closing days, they really weren't. the real question it. broadly divided as the country is and big issues facing us, is this a recipe for grid lock or will it spark dipartisan legislation. mitt romney said he would reach across the aisle and he asked those in charge next year to get something done. >> the nation as you know is at a criticical point we can't risk political bickers and partisanship. we have storeach across the aisle. we look to teachers and professors and county on you to teach and inspire our children with passion and discovery. >> the president pledged to meet with mitt romney to talk about the problems . if the republican party hopes to win back the white house it has work to do. governor romney lost among women and lost the hispanic vote. president
on sentry duty in the roads in and out of boston and guards outside -- the house and outside the homes of crown officials and with british artillery not aimed at the townhouse, the home of the colony's general corp., it was easy to understand why many bostonian felt threatened by the occupation during many more hated how some soldiers tried to stir up racial tensions in their town. of course, not everyone in boston is white. for instance, within months of their arrival in october of 1768, three british officers, probably drunk, had been discovered encouraging some african-american slaves in boston to attack their white masters. one of the drunk officers, captain john wilson, assured the black bostonian that the soldiers would come here to procure your freedom and with your help and assistance, we should be able to drive all the liberty boys to the devil. while the slaves he was talking to essentially -- ignored but that -- the soldiers' lives, but they were not in boston to free the slaves, several residents marched complaints, that captain wilson and his strong friends engaged in a co
's in boston. j. mart, if you can hear me amid the hoopla here at the newseum. you're a student at virginia, you've been e-mailing me all night about problems you're detecting in virginia. tell us the problems you see and why and what it means. >> the margins in conservative -- [inaudible] in the suburbs around richmond, chesterfield county is the biggest one, comparable to '08. in 2008 john mccain lost the commonwealth of virginia by seven points. the bottom line, barack obama can do a little bit worse across virginia and still win that state. if he wins the state, there's no path to the presidency for mitt romney. we'll get the western suburbs, look at the outer suburbs of northern virginia, the margins are comparable or a little bit better for romney than they were for mccain four years ago. so unless something big happens in the two big jurisdictions still being counted, virginia beach and fairfax up by washington, d.c., i think that the commonwealth of virginia is going to stay blue and give president obama a second term. >> republicans knew that there was trouble there, or has this al
chicago and president obama. mitt romney at his headquarters in boston. victory and concession speeches from across the country. but the night, your reaction by phone, e-mail, facebook, and twitter. live coverage begins at 8:00 eastern. you can access interactive maps and the election results, track state ballot initiatives at c- span.org. >> we are bringing you historical victory and concession speeches throughout the day here on c-span. coming up, we bring you president george conceding critic george bush conceding the race to arkansas gov. bill clinton. he speaks to supporters and family members at the westin galleria in houston. [applause] >> thank you very much. listen, we have got to get going. thank you. thank you very much. >> thank you, george. >> thank you so much. well, here's the way i see it. here's the way we see it and the country should see it -- that the people have spoken and we respect the majesty of the democratic system. i just called governor clinton over in little rock and offered my congratulations. he did run a strong campaign. i wish him well in the white house
soon. joining us from romney headquarters in boston is chairman and president of a company. your thoughts on what we know so far. 82 electoral votes for governor romney versus 64 for president obama. what's the mood there at romney headquarters? >> the mood is very good up here. it's very upbeat. there's a great sense of enthusiasm and energy in the room. so far so good. it's obviously going to be a close race, but i still believe that the governor is going to win with at least 300 electoral votes. i think for a sitting president to come into the election without 50% is a tough hurdle for him. the governor has run one hell of a campaign the last six weeks. so we're optimistic. i have learned a long time ago not to count chickens before they hatch but i feel strongly that we've had a good candidate, he's run a wonderful race. we've had a lot of support from a lot of people. and as i said, i'm guard ledly optimistic. i rather have opposition than the other side right now. >> what state are you focused on mostly? we have florida having closed but too close to call. pennsylvania too
and is live in boston now. we are already seeing some monday morning quarterbacking. what a shock. >> sure. when a party loses, this is what happens. it happened back in 2008 when john mccain lost. the republic party looked close at itself and now it's doing the same thing in the wake of mitt romney's defeat. it doesn't take much to understand why look at the numbers in key constituencies where republicans were facing uphill climb mr. romney did not do particularly well he got blown out with latino voters. mr. obama beating mr. romney with latino voters. women's vote. disadvantage for the g.o.p. continues. there you see again mr. obama with a commanding advantage over mr. romney. and lastly the youth vote. mitt romney's campaign didn't spend a lot of time courting these constituencies tried on occasions but it wasn't the overall focus of how they did it as opposed to the president's campaign which microtargetted. county by county, neighborhood by neighborhood. street by street and picked up these votes. and as a consequence. in the last time back four years ago republic party moved with th
the election. so what will they talk about? joining me now, national political rotter for the "boston globe" and contributor to the kudlow report. just to remind folks, take a listen to president obama during his first re-election press conference talking about mitt romney. >> he presented some ideas during the course of the campaign that i actually agree with. and so it would be interesting to talk to him about something like that. there may be ideas that he has with respect to jobs and growth that can help middle class families that i want to hear. >> so this lunch today, is it just common courtesy or might he have something in mind for mitt romney? >> i think it's potential that he has something in mind that he wants mitt romney to do. it's very unlikely any type of formal position either in his cabinet or otherwise. i mean, both sides are sort of projecting they don't expect a whole lot of news to actually come out of this meeting which would mean it's more of a symbolic gesture, a time for these guys to get together privately. >> well, robert, an op-ed in the "washington post" says, ob
cheers in chicagd tears in boston. like so many of you butt wih we have given our all to ths campaign. but the president crossed te electoral college thresholdn he picked up the state of o. and here in california.. the governor sticks his neck ou, begging voters to raise tax, >>> here's a look at the weather in some cities around the country. in d.c., a snowy mix. in st. louis, sunny and 50. denver, sunny and 73. and seattle, showers and 51. >>> here is your election night recap. barack obama has won a second term as president of the united states. the president defeated mitt romney in at least seven of nine key battleground states to rack up a decisive win in the electoral college, but the popular vote was very close. the president will still have to deal with a divided congress. democrats retained a slim margin in the senate while republicans retained their control of the house. john boehner will remain speaker of the house. big wins for same-sex marriage. maine and maryland approved gay and lesbian marriage by popular vote. and it's also on the ballot in washington state, but right
want to start with byron york. byron, good morning to you. in boston we find you there. let's go through this. how did the president's team put together this winning coalition. >> he reassembled the coalition he had in 2008. did extremely well with the groups i had done well with before, women, especially unmarried women, blacks, latinos, a number of groups republicans thought would be discouraged and would drift away from the president, they didn't drift away from the president. going to obama rallies, they were pretty fired up and they showed up on election day. bill: you have been talking to the romney camp. what are they saying about how and where they came up short. >> i ran into romney's entire brain trust. many of them were pointing a finger at hurricane sandy. that romney had momentum in the polls and after that the momentum was broken. and some said that obama had done enormous damage in may, june and july. but there were big issues at stake in this campaign. two different views of governing, higher taxes were more regulation and more spending and the vote terse chose pr
should get into the 50s all the way from boston to hartford. we should take another couple inches off that snow pack. funny saying that this time of year. rest of the country, southeast looks cold and chilly to start. the storm in the northwest it the one we'll track through the weekend. we'll watch that on saturday. the worst of it will be heading into the midwest. could watch good storms from minneapolis through areas of nebraska. sunday, areas of rain. watch out in chicago during the day on sunday. possibly a watchoshout at times. the middle of the country is going to get a little stormy. >> all right, bill. thanks so much. >>> just ahead, bond is back, and a new take on an old president. plus, whether you're team edward or team jacob, twilight mania is in full swing. your entertainment headlines are straight ahead. you're watching "first look" on msnbc. had to be slow. or that printing in color had to cost a fortune. nobody said an all-in-one had to be bulky. or that you had to print from your desk. at least, nobody said it to us. introducing the business smart inkjet all-in-one s
or higher taxes set to be implemented. one company in boston says it will cut between 1200 and 1400 jobs and plans to shift their investments and workers overseas to china. and the resignation of cia director david petraeus are raising eyebrows and elsewhere, days before he's supposed to testify on capitol hill. he's admitted to affair discovered by the fbi. and benghazi, that killed four americans, including our ambassador. much more on that. i'm jamie colby, back to cavuto on business here on fox, the most powerful name in news. >> neil: forget about blaming the fat cats, you, washington, fix the fiscal mess or there goes the country. and what happens at the end of the year when all of the issues sort of backup at the same time. i could go on and on and on and they back up like planes going back to laguardia. at the same time, the fact of the matter is, right now, we face this. unless this is fixed and soon and republicans get an idea that you can't touch defense and democrats get off the idea you can't even consider reading in the the reining in the growthen entitlements, senator, lis
the economy? carl cameron with the news live in boston this afternoon. governor romney's campaign made decisions that our watchers indicate cost him. >>carl: one tinge he was particularly deficient in was latino vote. when george w. bush won in 2000 he was north 40 percent and mitt romney was down 27 percent. there are questions whether early in the summer when the obama campaign unleashed attack ads on romney's business career whether he responded adequately. some suggested that $30 million worth of positive ads could have neutralized that. he did not talk about bipartisanship in the language you normally hear at the end of a campaign particularly until after the convention. normally the convention is the point where the big tent is open and people try to bring in independents and moderates but it was conservative convention. there was a good example last night of the bipartisan out outreach. >> the nation is in a critical point. a time like this we cannot risk partisan bickering. our leaders have to reach across the aisle to do the people's work. we citizens have to rise to the occas
was formed in 1979 it went from boston in the east to syracuse, new york, as its western most outlet. the big 10, as you said, was midwestern schools. the pack 8, which is now the pack 12, was surprisingly enough four schools in california, two in oregon and two in washington. so geography was important, academics were important and competitive levels were important. now the landscape has changed completely. geography has been thrown out completely. academics have been thrown out completely and, to some degree, competitive levels have been thrown out completely because it's all about what schools can make you the most t.v. dollars and a conference and what conferences can make schools the most t.v. dollars. that's the unifying force now. >> brown: so it's dollars and television. particularly in football, right? >> exactly. a all of those thing changes that have happened over a period of ten years now, because it began when the a.c.c. raided the big east for virginia tech, miami and boston college to improve itself as a football conference to get more t.v. dollars for football. it is about foo
. >>> things are back to normal after this morning's crash involving a metro bus. the bus to boston station t-boned a car, 12 people were on the bus and one person went to the hospital with minor injuries. >>> hundreds of victims of hurricane sandy will literally be getting a warm feeling, thanks to the generosity of northern virginia donors. the leesburg community are collecting blankets now to send up to folks who lost power and everything in last week's storm. they called their effort "operation keep them warm." it all began with calls for help from a minister and the manager. >> every time we had a community need, we have always stepped up very quickly to meet that community need and i think this is a great example of us doing that. and the community and the employees just really understanding what everybody in new york and new jersey is going through and really wanting to help and this is an easy way to do that. >> fedex is picking up the cost of shipping the blankets. donations are accepted at a noble loudon hospital until tuesday. >>> well, the annual holiday returns to national harbor
is live in massachusetts, south of boston with a look at the conditions there. maria, good morning. >> well, good morning. you can see for yourself the conditions are pretty awful. the winds are anywhere from 40 to 50 miles per hour, at times gusting higher than that. you can see what it's doing to the water. then we have the overwatch along with that push of water. so we've seen a number of coastal flooding report places like nantucket having six inches of water over some spots. just over the last few hours, a buoy off of buzzard's bay, the winds gusted to 67 miles per hour. wind advisories posted all along the new england coast. they'll drop away this afternoon. that is some good news as the winds will start to ease, as the storm pulls away later tonight. still you see that potential for 30 to 40-mile-per-hour wind gusts. no doubt this will lead to some big head aches at boston logan. commuters either greeted with some flooding on the roadways or perhaps in places like worcester, mass, just to our north and west, looking at several inches of snowfall and that could continue the n
, destroyed 55 homes and damaged more than 120 others. there are growing concerns now that the city of boston is sitting on thousands of underground gas leaks, and several are big enough to set off an explosion like the one in san bruno. molly line live in boss upon -- boston for us now. >> reporter: a new study released by boston university shows they found more than 3,000 leaks, and it raises concerns about everything from air quality to a rare risk of an explosion. there were two explosions across the country earlier this month, one a multistory building that was leveled in springfield, massachusetts, and another deadly blast out in indianapolis reminding all of us of just how powerful natural gas can be. and while the blast here in massachusetts was caused by human error, a pipe that was hit by a drill, the study conducted by boston university raises concerns about the aging infrastructure of one of the nation's oldest cities and just how quickly the old pipes here in boston can be replaced. now, while the majority of leakr nathan phillips and his team found six locations where levels wer
. here we go. >> in the parade of papers, "the boston globe," house democrats and republicans came together in a rare showing of bipartisanship to pay tribute to their own. tip o'neill, they officially renamed a government office building near the capitol in o'neill's honor. >> can you get a little closer, donnie? "the dallas morning news," the environmental protection agency has temporarily suspended bp from new contracts in the united states because of a, quote, lack of business integrity. existing contracts will not be affected. the deep water horizon spill of 2010 resulted in the death of 11 platform workers. and you're done, donny. >> i was literally about to go out and run up to it. >> you can regroup for a minute. joining us now with a look at the "politico playbook," executive editor there, mr. jim vandehei. good morning. >> how you doing, willie? >> doing all right. we were talking about your peer at the top of the show. take us behind the scenes. steve rattner and he's not alone is pessimistic that a deal will get done before the end of the year. >> here's a reason that y
of "the boston globe" about the governor romney style of leadership. later on, more on the president obama governing style. we will be right back. ♪ [video clip] >> the same path that we are on means $20 trillion in debt at the end of a second term, crippling unemployment, staggering take-home pay, depressed home values, and unless we change course we may be looking at another recession. so, the question of this election comes down to this -- do you want more of the same, or do you want real change? >> we know what change looks like and we know what governor romney is selling. giving more power to the biggest banks is not change. another $5 trillion tax cut for the wealthy is not change. refusing to answer questions about the details of your policy until after the election is definitely not change. we are ruling out compromise with the tea party folks, that is not change. changing the facts of your opinion during the campaign is not change. >> tuesday night, watch live coverage of the election. throughout the night, your reactions by phone, e-mail, facebook, and twitter. >> "washington j
campaign in boston on tuesday night. joining us on our news line. hi ginger, good morning. >> good morning. thanks for having me. >> bill: it was not a happy night there. the word got around pretty close that things were not going romney's way didn't it? >> it was pretty clear early points in the night that he wasn't going to win but there was sort of a group that held out hope in boston. but the crowd started to dwindle, the enthusiasm was gone really early. >> bill: what were some of the signs like virginia didn't immediately go or north carolina didn't immediately or florida or ohio? is that what people were looking for? >> yeah, you were looking for wins in any of those states. and even north carolina which sort of everyone had conceded at that point. they knew that -- the obama camp had conceded. they knew that romney was going to win north carolina. i think they called new hampshire before north carolina which was not a good sign for people hoping for a romney victory. >> bill: what were they saying now the ne
they go from here? chief political correspondent carl cameron has that story from boston. >> reporter: mitt romney's family surrounded him on stage after he graciously concedeed defeat. he did not see coming. >> i so wish, i so wish that i had been able to fulfill your hopes to lead the country in a different direction. >> there were witnesses in romney's run and the president exploited them. perhaps the low point for romney was ther is tippously in -- surreptitiously 47% remark. he did not have attack ads over the summer to negatively define his business career. >> hundreds of factors and stores were shuttered. >> reporter: it took a toll. in the self-described must-win state of ohio the loss was in no small measure to slow response to democrat ache tack on the opposition to auto bail-out. romney had battleground states. romney admits under estimating the organization and support. >> i never waivers in my support of comprehensive immigration reform. >> it started the debate about better courting women, minorities and younger voters. romney was clobbered monk latinos. president won 90
